Question about Canon SmartBase MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When printing & copying the right hand side feeds in OK but the left hand side is jamming up after feeding in approx 25mm. Consequently the paper twists sideways and we get a "paper jam" fault. I can't see any obstruction without starting to take covers off. Any thoughts?
I am not an expert but I am on my second MP730.
If it is the scan feeder that you are having a problem with, I had the same problem twice. What I did is jamb about 1/8" of post notes between the far paper control thing and the cover. Using the post notes you can add and subtact sheets easy, and keep the whole spacer thing together. When you get up close to 30 sheets (or more), you have to assist the feed a little (page at a time until it can handle it), if that is a problem.
If it is the printer feeder that you are having a problem with, what I did is clamp two 1/8" wide by 3/8" deep sticks of wood on the feeder to prevent the paper from wiggling to much, but it has to wiggle a bit or it wont feed. Snug but not to snug.
Hope this helps

The machine had never given trouble before, only this time when a new person was using it. So, figuring they may have refilled the paper tray incorrectly, I took out the paper guides at the back and kept hand feeding one sheet at a time. After each jam up I had to reset everything but after about 7-8 tries "something" cleared and now it works fine.
